OBJECTIVES IN DETAIL:
The objective of INDEXYS is to tangibly realize industrial implementations of cross-domain architectural concepts developed in the GENESYS project in three domains: automotive, aerospace and railway, thereby relating to ARTEMIS-JU Industrial Priority: “Reference de-signs and architectures”. GENESYS (Generic Embedded System Platform) is developing a cross-domain architec-ture according to requirements of the ARTEMIS Strategic Research Agenda. The GENESYS architectural style supports a composable, robust, and comprehensible component-based framework with strict separation of compu-tation from message-based communication. So components can be massively reused in differing contexts. In the GENESYS architecture three integration levels of components are distinguished: chip-level, where IP cores com-municate via a deterministic Network-on-a-Chip (NoC), device level, where chips communicate within a device, and system level, where devices communicate in an open or closed environment.
INDEXYS built on legacy platforms:
INDEXYS expands the GENESYS approach by implementing and integrating architectural services into prevailing (real-world!) platform solutions. A key goal of INDEXYS is legacy integration, for plat-form providers – by integrating new architectural services into legacy platforms – and for platform users – by supporting legacy applications. INDEXYS addresses robustness wrt. design faults and physical faults by diversity and component replication. INDEXYS targets ARTEMIS-JU Sub-Programme 5: “Computing environments for embedded systems” by developing new concepts for composable component integration, re-usable dependability services, and a cross-domain tool-chain based on OMGs Model Driven Architecture. By fostering development of re-usable dependable products and associated services, INDEXYS significantly contributes to competitive advantages of European players in the transportation industries.
